Lowell Sun (Newspaper) - August 19, 1927, Lowell, Massachusetts THE LOWELL SUN FRIDAY AUGUST 19 1927 WORLD GENERAL STRIKE CALLED FOR NEXT MONDAY Sacco-Vanzetti Defense Committee In- forms Boston Unions That Notice Has Been Sent Around Entire World to Quit Work If Doomed Men Go to Chair BOSTON, AUK. "world general strike" IKIB been t-nllcd for next Monday, tho last dny of llfo for Nicola Sacco nnrt Bnrtolumeo Vanznt- ti, under proseiit sentence, unless some legal intervention is obtained In the few days remaining. The Rtnt- cb-Vahzotti defense comniiltec in a communication to local unions dc- clared "u call lias hecn sent around the entire world for a 'world general Blrike' next Monday. Aug. in case all legal means have failed np to that time to save our innocent brothers from ihe electric chair." Meeting 1'onlirlit Tho committee called a conference to be held tonight at Hie Amalgamal- ed Clothing Workers hall linn- of rep- resentatives and active members ot "all trade- unions and fnilcrmiJ or- gnuizatiojis in ihe city of IJoston and vicinity to discuss jilnns and make preparations for ihe culliiif; of a gen- eral strike." Although several hundreds of needle workers remained away from work here on AUK. 'J, the protest strike planned for that day failed when their leaders did nut issue specific orders. Sacco, who several days ago ended a SO-day hunger strike, has broken, through a joint statement with Vun- zetti issued through the defense com- mittee the silence as to why they broke up their fast. Thai llungpr Strike "We kept on tlio hunger strike unti jforciljlii eating faced us. Our liesln- to uat food again was not a sign J that we liad stopped protesting. Wo I will continue to protest, not only at 'tin.- secrecy of tlie governor's investi- i gallon, but at Hie whole treatment given us iluring the past seven years I by those in power in Massachusetts jWo will protest'as we take our seats in tlie electric cliair." The case of Cclestino Madeiros, New Bedford youth of J'ortuguese extrac- tion, whose life, forfeited for the mur- der of n hank cashier, has been pro- longed, lias again come to tho forefront through the appeal of his counsel to fiov. Fuller to examination of his mental condition. Madeiras is also under sentence of death at the expiration of a respite on Aug. 22. Cautious Son Sacco, with Vnnzetti, has repeated ly declared that lie would not retreat from his radical ideas ban no Inten- tion that they shall die with him. Meeting in tho harher shop of the prison, Sacco told his 14 year old sou Dante, "I want you to work for hu- manity. Never mind gold and riches. Also remember all the good people who have worked so hard for us even though their efforts may prove un- successful." Federal Court Is Final Hope K'mHIniH'cl) decisions by Justice George A. San- derson of that court, and by Judge Webster Thayer of the superior court, and refused to grant a writ of error. Tlie exceptions were to the refusal of Justice Sanderson to grant a writ of error and to the refusal by Judge Thayer of a. new trial, a revocation of sentence and a stay of execution. Arguments on these exceptions were made last Tuesday before four Justices of the supreme court, Bitting as the full bench, and at their conclusion, defense counsel filed n petition for a writ, of error direct with the full bench. The court had queried Ar- thur D. Hill, chief defense counsel, as In why this procedure had not been followed in the first place.1 Heading Argues Arguments for the state were made by Attorney General Arthur K. Read- ing. Tlie four justices were Henry K. Bralcy, who presided in view of the illness of Chief Justice Arthur P. Ttugg; Kdward P. Pierce, James B. Carroll and William C. Waito. These legal steps by counsel for Nicola Sacco and Hartolomeo Vah- zetti, whose respite from execution for murder expires at midnight on Aug. 22, were based chiefly on allega- tions of prejudice on the part of Judge, Thayer, who presided at tho trial, and whose previous refusal to grant a new trial was upheld by the Massachusetts supreme court last April. The decision was announced just after D a. m., by the supreme court recorder, with whom tho justices filed it yesterday. The decision upheld the ruling of Judge Thayer that the motion for a new trial came too iatc because sen- tence had been pronounced. "Neither the judge nor any of Ma associates had tho de- cision said, to entertain tho motion for a revocation of sentence. Deny Writ of Error With regard to tho petition for a writ of error tho decision says: "The wording of the statute is clear and must be construed as meaning that the issuance of a writ of error la a capital case rests in (iie sound Judicial discretion of the single jus- tice to whom the application is pre- and that "the petition was rightly denied." The petition for a writ of error sub- mitted to tho full bench was dis- missed because a "writ of error cor- rau nobis at common law has become obsolete, in view of the express pur- pose of the legislature as manifested by tlio statute. Ends Ang. 22 Tlie action before Judge Thayer and. Judge Sanderson was brought hy defense counsel after Gov. Fuller had announced on Aug. 3 his refusal to extend executive clemency to Sacco and This refusal was fol- lowed a few days later by publication of the report made to the governor by his special advisory committee which had made an Independent In- vestigation of the case and reached Hid conclusion that the two men had been given a fair trial. Defense counsel also petitioned Justice Oliver Wendell .Holmes of the United States supreme court at Ills home in Beverly for u writ of habeas corpus. This petition was denied. At the same time Gov. Fuller was asked for a stay of execution. ITe had previously granted a respite from the week of July 10, when the men had been sentenced to die, to and In- cluding Aug. 10. Lato in the evening of Aug. 10, after the governor and his council had been in session, .It was announced that a further respite had Coiillnuril to Page Five AMUSEMENT NOTES STHAM) The vivid blizzard scene in the Tiffany production "Siwwbonnd" which Is buinK shown to crowded uHtiB at the Strand was photographed in tho mountains of northern Callfur- nia. Tlie entire company of playp.rs who wont 10 the location for tho (lim- ing1 of tlie picture wore actually snow- bound for a week.
